The Taylor Creek Fly Shop, located less than 30 minutes from Aspen on the banks of the Fryingpan River in Basalt, is western Colorado's oldest and friendliest guide service and specialty fly shop. From the Fryingpan River, Roaring Fork, Colorado and Crystal rivers you can enjoy the best fly fishing Colorado offers all within the Roaring Fork Valley. We hope you stop by for detailed and helpful information, or join our knowledgeable staff for a day on the water.
We are very fortunate to have many different and varied fishing options within a short drive from our store in Basalt. One can experience everything from small and intimate high country streams filled with brookies and cutthroats to the hard-charging rainbows and browns on the huge brawling runs of the lower Colorado.
Our experienced guides make their selection of water based on angler preference, level of experience, water conditions, and current hatches. Guide wade trips are taken on all local waters and guided float trips utilizing McKenzie River dories are done on the lower Roaring Fork and Colorado Rivers.
